Unblended Orange Cream Slush @ Sonic


I mentioned before that I love Sonic's cream slushes, but I never showed you a picture of what it looks like when they separate the slush from the ice cream. Here is my orange cream slush from awhile ago. This is one of my favorite things in life. * Here is a strawberry cream slush without separation *

A Cappuccino @ Augie's Coffee House - Riverside & Redlands, CA


Augie's Coffee House (Also at 113 N 5th St, Redlands, CA 92373)
4205 Main Street
Riverside, CA 92501
Website

Went here just before I came home for summer break and loved this cappuccino. It wasn't bitter like the cappuccino and black coffee I've had at Lift Coffee Roasters in Riverside (but you might like it since so many people love it on Yelp). Random fact: à la Minute uses Augie's coffee in their ice cream. YUM!

If you're curious about the kind of coffee I prefer, I prefer medium and dark roasts, and my favorite coffee places are Caffe Ladro in Seattle, Peet's in Berkeley (other locations too), Caffe Strada in Berkeley, Philz Coffee in San Francisco (also in Berkeley and other places), Blue Bottle in SF, and possibly now Augie's! I'm also not an expert on coffee, but I do like stronger coffee flavors and am starting to dislike sweet coffee drinks. I like black coffee, cappuccinos, and Americanos either with a small amount of sugar or with none at all.

Dulce de Leche Cupcakes

The delicious dulce de leche cupcakes I made over a year ago. *Also, these dulce de leche cookie bars are easy and sooo good* Thank you for the recipe, Joy the Baker! All I did was use her recipe and add dulce de leche as a filling in the cupcake bases, which you do not have to do at all if you don't want to. They are delicious with or without filling!





 
All ready to go! I love this cupcake carrier!

Spicy Pork Bibimbap @ HRD Coffee Shop - San Francisco

HRD Coffee Shop
Website
521 3rd St.
San Francisco, CA 94107

This is not just a coffee shop. It's a highly rated (see Yelp and Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives) Asian fusion place near AT&T Park. This spicy pork bibimbap was SO delicious. I love how it had both Korean and Japanese ingredients (HRD marinated spicy pork, spinach, kimchee, cucumber, fried egg, seasoned sprouts, & pickled daikon).



Under the egg: Brown rice & daikon
